Good, not great

Second time in a row we've been disappointed at Country's Main Street. Food is not hot enough and lacks taste. My sweet potato was burned... had to send back for another. Cabbage is just OK, corn casserole is too sweet. Disappointed in their veggie plate!

This is not BBQ, it is over sauced meat that tastes like it was baked in an oven. We have been to three of their restaurants a couple of times thinking it might have been an odd night since everybody raves about them. Don't waste your time.

I grew up here and have never liked their BBQ. Their BBQ chicken is never cooked thoroughly so eat at your own risk. Their brisket is tough as leather. Nothing's changed in 20 years except more locations. I'll never understand why. People must have never had good BBQ to continue to eat this stuff. It's like a bad chain restaurant.... More

Me, my boyfriend, our son, and a friend went to the location on the north side of columbus, ga and they made me feel some uncomfortable. The reason being is because I'm black and my boyfriend is white. We revived dirty and nasty looks while we was there. We didn't get a server till almost 10minutes and they wasn't even... More

Very disappointed in this restaurant's food. Vegetables tasted canned and if fresh were very bland. BBQ isn't anything to rave over to me...I wondered what all the hoopla is about this restaurant.

BEST Brunswick/Cue Stew anywhere! Thankfully, I was able to order a gallon of it to bring back home. My husband loves the Conglomeration Platter and makes me order the Beef Brisket with Texas Shoop Sauce so he can his "Q" and mine too. :) Ohhh, and the Vidalia Onion Dip with Frito's Scoops is so cheesy and comforting! Dessert? Oh... More

All of the sides were wonderful. The bbq chicken was great! However, the other meats were just okay. The bbq sauce was too thin to stay on the meat and lacked flavor. They had a lot of other options on the menu that sounded interesting to try.

We thrive on looking for local eats when we travel! We were in Columbus, GA visiting our son at Ft. Benning & was looking for local fare - Country's BBQ was recommended. 1. BBQ was just okay. 2. Appetizer Onion Dip - was very good 3. The vegetarian options were very minimal - please offer a baked potato on a... More

This place was promoted in tourist material as a must try. I also had this as a recommendation from a prior resident. We started with some fried pickles which was a WOW. Huge portion and good. The main course was very disappointing for anything called smoke food. it was dry and lacked flavor (including smoke). Between my son and I... More
